WELLESLEY, MASS., WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 1906. Price, 5 Cents Plays of the Irish National Theatre. On Thursday afternoon, January 25th, four plays of the Irish National Theatre were pr< sented at the Colonial Theatre. Mr. Clayton D. Gilbert of the Emerson School of Oratory trained the cast, which was composed of students of this school, aided by children from Miss Dougherty's Children's Stock Company. The first play was "The Saxon Shillin' ' by Patrick Colum, It took us into the blank misery of the Kearney's cottage in the west of Ireland, with the pall of a rainy noonday intensifying the atmos- phere We learn of the oppression which the father had suffered as a Fenian, the disgrace of the brother Hugh's joining the red-coats, and the menace of eviction, through the two sisters Prighid and Mag-gie. They are interrupted by the brother him- self who offers them "Saxon shillins" for the rent which is due. With intense feel- ing the sisters refuse. Upon this scene enters Farelly, the landlord's agent who too is dependent upon the landlord's Saxon shillin's. He warns Kearney of suspect by his regiment; the bugle call of the red-coats sound. Then follows the approach of the guard. Kearney dashes off his uniform, curses the landlord and Saxons, takes his father's gun and goes out to protect his sisters. A cry is heard The brother falls into the bare room shot through. This is one impression of the horror of an eviction to the Irish tenant the poverty and despair. No doubt this is even to-day one of the social problems in Ireland. The Anti-English spirit, the principle of independence which was nrominent in the galleries, as well as on the floor, applauded patriotically, while, if the aliens did not find every point clear, they too gave approval for the subjective manner in which the actors handled their parts. Miss Beulah Dix, one of the Rad- cliffe writers, as Brighid Kearney gave an interpretation which was careful and sym- pathic. 'The Lost Saint," a mystery play written by Dr. Douglass Hyde followed. The scene was in the stone-walled teaching room of a monastery, a very long time ago. Rows of benches were filled with small children with their bare thin legs hanging over the edge. At the desk before them sat a teacher in a long flowing robe. Thev recited lines from the poems of the long lost saint, Angus Ceile. There comes in an old man with a round wooden bowl. He picks the crumbs which have fallen from their meal to give to the little birds. As the poem is recited, Conall ashy-eyed boy, blunders, the master rebukes! him and names him half-witted, and bids him stay within until the poem is learned. During the rece-s Conall falls upon the wooden seat .and weeps. To him comes the old man with soothing hand and voice, and askes a prayer from God on the "soft lad," to aid him in his memo- ry, and "clear the mist from his mind." Just as the old man had cared for the smallest birds, gathering seeds and crumbs, so he comforts the little boy. When the recess is over the teacher, with the smallest boy climging to his robe, overhears the prayer and scorns the power of the white haired man. Then the child awakens, speaks of the vision which came to him, and clearly recites the whole sacred poem. Dismayed, shamed, the teacher recognizes the Lost Saint in the familiar old man and falls upon his knees. T he play in spirit of faith, of power was most successful of all the plays. It possessed a high feeling of color and a deep sense of mystery. It flamed with the Celtic imagination. The excellent work by Mr. Lambert as an old man added to the charm of the impression. Between the acts the orchestra played a strain of sea-music to introduce the next play. Mr. J. M. Synge who wrote the folk- tragedy "Riders to the Sea" touched the same strain that Miss Rickert did in the beginning of "The Reapers," that motif of the relentlessness and fascination of the sea. He gave us one definite concrete example — Maurya mourning "nigh dead with tears" over the death of her son Michael. Bartlev, the youngest son, as his father before him intends to go to sea. to be gone as he reassures his mother "for three, or for four, or for five days" and dressing in Michael's old shirt starts to set out His mother begs him to remain, to be the only man, to build the coffin all of white boards from Connemarra for her. Kathleen and Nora plead for Maurya to give Bartlev her speed well; and when he has left without it, they place the hot cake they have been baking, in the mother's arms, place the stick from Galway in her hands and urge her out to him. She returns shaken by the vision she has seen of Michael, galloping on his mare. Her stick drops and her eyes grow bright She runs down the long line of men from that fishing hut, the father, and his sire and the seven sons — all are swallowed by the the sea — some were found and some were not, she croons and tears at her gray robe. The sound of moaning voices, first afar off as the wash of the sea then nearer, it comes. A crowd of mourners, men, women and children drag in ; four men bear in the body of Bartlev. who has just been drowned. Maurya with the coat and socks of Michael pressed to her breast as if it they were a child, shrieks and prays at this sight of her son. No hope, no happiness, nothing but bitterness and mournful sorrow falls upon the scene. The extreme simplicity constitutes the forcefulness and intensity of this tragedy. Stirring, it was, as a bit of the sorrow of life in its naked truth put before our eyes. The strongest effect was secured before the mourners had arrived, when Maurya was tossed and cut by her grief and foreboding. This was better managed than the latter part, which was far too long drawn ou t One may well earnestly desire that such a well rounded artistic phase of life might be produced here in America. We are a nation old enough, and enough united m growth to justify any attempt. \\ e must have playwrites with latent power to discover and lay before us certain pas- sionate, intense phases of our own Ameri- can life, even as forceful and inspiring as the plavs of the Irish National Theatre. Clyde Fitch is satisfied to be merely sa- tirical against the conventional city life. Angustus Thomas writes with a lighter and less deliberate stroke. Both write for the theatre-goer, whose only de- sire is novelty and amusement not home- ly, raw every day scenes of every day life. The spell of the sea is not dispelled by the last play, a rollicking comedv in one act by Dr. Hyde called "The Twisting of the Rope." In fact the charm of this play lay.in the dances beginning and ending the scene, — dances bright with pretty mavou- neens and Sheamuses, — interrupted by Hanrahan, the wild old bard who straight- way wins the love of Oona, the daughter of the house. The wily trick and artifice, dear to the Celtic mind which has Cuchul- lain ever in memory, is used by Sheamus to rid the house of the engaging bard. The twisting of the rope by which the comedy gains its name is proposed to the poet, who boastful and scornful of all Clouts in Min- ster assays the twisting of the hay in the rope, at the end of which he walk's back- wards through the door. It is shut upon him. The trick is played! They think of him no more. Oona is reconciled to Sheamus, her betrothed, joins in the dance, and all is gay with the music of bag-pipe and flying feet. The neighbour Sheela who comes to the dame and urges the trick upon Hanrahan is vary amusing and delightful as played by Miss Eacker' The color, the flaming red of the traditional Irish cloak, which one fair- (Concluded on Page 2.)

WHOLESALE AND RETAIL "Entered as second class matter, November 12. 1903, at the Post Office, at Wellesley, Mass., under the Act of Congress, March 3, 1879." Dear College News: Is it not possible to have an orchestra at Wellesley? 1 believe that it is possible and at a small expenditure of time, too. Can we not do what they do at Smith and Vassar? If any student who can play an instrument of the symphony orchestra will send me her name and the name of the in- strument, we can make a beginning. Are there any students now in College who are willing to learn the Flute. Clarinet. Viola or 'Cello? Yours for progress, II. C. Macdougall. The News was very much pleased to receive this letter from Mr. Macdougall. The recent lectures on the brass and wood- wind of the modern orchestra have brought a better understanding and a closer in- terest in this phase of musical expression to those of us who were so fortunate as to hear them. With the new interest, comes the desire for a nearer acquaintance with, and a more frequent enjoyment of or- chestral music, and the possibilities for adequate realization of this desire, sug- gested in Mr. Macdougall' s letter, promise a vast amount of profit and pleasure to the college community. We can all appreciate the freshness and new scope of musical interest which the opening _ of this hitherto unexplored wealth of musical composition would bring tolfour little world. And why may we'* not realize this ambition, if other colleges have done so? Must we acknowledge inferiority in this respect, as we already have to Vassar FOWNES GLOVES ARE A "GOOD THING TO HAVE ON HAND" AND ALL GOOD DEALERS HAVE THEM ON HAND. and Smith in the numbers and enthusiasm of their Silver Bay delegations; to Holyoke and Radcleffe in well equipped library buildings; to Smith in the opportunity for increased social activity offered by its Students' Building and for the study of French in its "French House ?" It would appear that a moderate ex- penditure of interest and time would be repaid by a great gain for the college in musical development. With the realiza- tion of this end in view, we beg a speedy, and enthusiastic response to Mr. Macdou- gall' s kind suggestion. (Continued from Page i.)

The acting did prove, after the lust two plays, amateurish and crude, and the stage setting carelessly managed — yet the im- pressions were keen, effective and con- nected as incidents in life often happen to be, and as varied, filling us with wonder at the intensity of feeling the sense of the whole which we carried away. The opportunity of seeing these plays may come again to the public and it is well for the many girls who did not see them, to realize their value, as exam- ples of modern play craft, and as pro- ductions of the spirit of the Gaelic League whose leader was so warmly welcomed a short time ago at Wellesley.

Now that winter has ceased to be the subject of raillery, and ice is forming about the edges of Lake Waban, it is to be trusted that each one of us will have but one thought in mind — the Ice Carnival! So when one of the martyrs upon the Carnival Com- mittee stealthily draws near a room showing signs of habita- tion, and apologetically broaches the subject 01 contribution to that worthy object, let us not listen too grievously, but in- stead interrupt the plea with generous opulence. S. G. II. In our vise of the trolleys about Wellesley, we are brought, more than in any other way, in contact witn all classes 01 the community; what the community thinks 01 us is hard to say. We enter a Natick car, for instance, either alonu or in groups, too often hatless, sometimes in a sweater and lurs; it is out lew of us who go properly hatted and coated, quietly and demurely. Of the people of the community who smile at the thoughtless- ness of the college girls we need think but little ; but tnere are many who may not take so limited a view. On the car there are, perhaps, two or three young women who have been teach- ing in district schools during the day ; they are laughing and talking happily enough among themselves, when suddenly in comes a college girl. The talking ceases, or continues only at half speed; they become self-conscious, instinctively compar- ing themselves with the newcomer. It is inevitable that tnese young women should feel the advantages of the Wellesley girl; her very lack of self-consciousness they perhaps misconstrue as conscious superiority. It is not to be desired that, it we happen to be in a group of our friends, our conversation falls entirely on "exams ' and "cuts" and other purely college sub- jects; if we are alone, we devour the Riverside Edition ot Spen- ser's "Faerie Queen" with Wellesley written on the cover, — perhaps we lay it down beside us with the Wellesley side up- permost. And we continually make ourselves conspicuous by going about hatless. Girls, instead of blindly following this conspicuous habit, instead of flaunting the name of Wellesley everywhere, instead of claiming the "license" which we consider our due as college girls, let us make all with whom we come in contact — from the teachers in the district schools and the old man opposite, who has been in the stock-yards, to the woman in the corner with a dozen bundles and two babies — let us make them all feel a friendly respect for the girls who are here to learn to be women of culture and tenderness. To be thoughtful is only doing our part to remove the idea of the bread-winners that the mental workers are unfeeling parasites. The name of Wellesley means to these people simply what we, in words and actions, make it mean; why flaunt it? T. 1908. III. Elevator etiquette in the world at large is an uncertain and varying quality. In the department store it is a thing unknown and even in hotels and business houses of good standing a sur- prising amount of rudeness is to be observed in the jostle be- fore the door. Since our return from vacation, the new elevator has been running, and, except in the morning after chapel, or at noon, it can easily accommodate all who wish to enter. At these times, however, there is ni_>.d lor courtesy. If this brief foreword may have the proverbial effect of "a word to the wise" a precedent may be established which will make pushing and crowding a social impossibility. L. IV. In almost every recitation at College Hall, there comes a moment where the instructor's voice is drowned by an ambi- tious orator or songstress in the corridor. Of course, we college girls try to have broad interests; we try to listen with equal at- tention to a discussion on ethics or a recital of Mary Smith's last letter from home, but we do appreciate it when our atten- tion is allowed to concentrate on one thing at a time. As it is, we leave class with most varied gleanings of knowledge : — Les- sing devoted all his energies to destroying the French influence in Germany — somebody out in the hall hasn't seen somebody else for ages — he opposed Gottshed — English 2 has just had the most awful quiz — he had a very broad knowledge of classic- al literature — it's just pouring outdoors and Tilly Jones lost her rubbers yesterday! Would it be possible for communi- cative souls to give vent to their pent-up feelings in some place other than the College Hall corridors, at some other time than during recitation periods? Could not the charming render- ings of "Dearie" and "Everybody works but Father" be re- served for centre, between classes, when all the assembled faculty and students could enjoy them? We do not in the least advocate a total suppression of joyous exuberance — merely a regard for the old adage, "a place for everything and every- thing in its place!" 1908. NOYES BROS.

Mr. Macdougall played the slow movement from Schubert's Unfinished Symphony; and the choir sang "By the Waters of Babylon," by Neidlinger, and Barnby's anthem, "Abide with me," the soloists being Miss Legg and Miss Williams. At Billings Hall, at 4.20 on the afternoon of Wednesday, January 31, the students of the Music Department will render the following program : Piano : Gavotte in B flat Handel Miss Dorothy Hinds, iqoq.

Piano : First movement from Concerto in C minor Beethoven (With second piano accompaniment.) Miss Mabel J. Bowden, 1906. On Monday evening, February 5, an unusually interesting concert will be given at Billings Hall, by Mrs. May Sleeper Rug- gles and the Rev. William Washburn Sleeper. The program will be "Echoes from the Balkans," and will consist of Bul- garian folk-songs and national airs. During his five years' residence in Bulgaria, Mr. Sleeper has made extensive collec- tions of this fascinating music, most of which is unpublished, and is handed down from generation to generation in oral form. The opportunity offered us in this concert is one greatly to be appreciated from an intellectual standpoint as well as from the point of view of purely aesthetic enjoyment. PARLIAMENT OF FOOLS. A CURRENT EVENT! Far out in old Atlantic, Mrs. Gulf Stream one fine day, Decided to move westward, full forty miles, they say; So she trundled her young wavelets in, and said, "I've come to stay.'' And when she came near Boston land, she took the coast by storm; She was Neptune's descendent, so her manners were "good form , ' ' And they gave her a reception exceptionally warm. And Wellesley showed warm friendship and greeted her with ease, Sprouted out at once as fresh and green as you could please, While Glee-Club birds sang sweetly 'neath budding Alum- na trees.

The lecture of January 17, on the instruments of the Sym- phony Orchestra, was continued by Professor Macdougall on the afternoon of January 25. The subject for the afternoon's consideration was the Brass of the Symphony Orchestra; these are the trumpet, cornet, trombone, tuba and French horn The trumpet is one of the most ancient of instruments, strong and exceedingly brilliant in tone. It is the soprano among the brass instruments. The cornet is a modern instrument, often substituted for the trumpet; but its tone-quality, although very like that of the trumpet, is more metallic and less pleasing. The trombone, also very ancient, is capable, like the stringed instruments, of the finer shades of intonation; it is noble, powerful in tone, with great dynamic range; the tenor or bass of the brass instruments. The tuba is much less ancient than the instruments above mentioned; it is comparatively recent, having been invented by Adolphe Sax in the last century. This instrument is the deep bass of the brass instruments. It is capable of produc- ing very low tones, but tones which are, at the same time, deep, round and full. Most beautiful and pleasing in tone of all the brass instru- ments, is the French horn, an instrument very much coiled and recoiled upon itself, possessing about fourteen feet of tube length if turned into a straight line. Its tone is beautiful])' round, soft and full. It is the alto or tenor of the brass of the ( tivhestra. Professor Macdougall was assisted in this lecture, as in the previous one, by Associate Professor Hamilton at the piano- forte, and by members of the Boston Symphony, Messrs. M. Hess, French horn; C. Merrill, trumpet and cornet; L. Hampe, trom- bone; J. F. Dworak, tuba. The illustrative selections chosen »vere as follows: Trumpet: 1. Fra Diavolo (with pianoforte). Cornet and Trumpet: 2. Piece, "Rosary," Nevin (with pianoforte) Trombone : 3. Positions (without pianoforte). To show method of ma- nipulation and tone production. 4. Piece (with pianoforte). French Horn. 5.

The small number of Alumna? subscribing for the Wellesley Magazine without the College News makes it seem advisable not to repeat hereafter, in the Magazine, short, personal items which have already been printed in the News. All official notices, from the College or Alumnae Association, and all notes of marriages, births, and deaths, will however continue to ap- pear in both publications Reports from Wellesley Clubs will be given in full in the Magazine only. The News will usually contain a brief mention of items given in detail in the Magazine. The Alumnae column of the Magazine seems the appropriate place for the discussion of all doings of Wellesley women which are of more than passing interest. The Alumnae and Faculty are accordingly asked to send to the Alumnae editor accounts of literary, philanthropic, educational, or otht-r work in which they are engaged; and to suggest to the Alumna? editor sources in which she can find material of interest for this column.

It is to be hoped that the exhibition of pictures by Mr. Jo- seph Sindon Smith now in the gallery of the Art Building will be seen by every one in the College. Not only have the pic- tures great archa?ological interest, but they are artistically a high achievement. They are in no sense imitations but wonderful representa- tions, giving one a sense of absolute reality — and they are painted with such sympathy and true understanding, that thev lend a new interest to the works of art which they repre- sent. The collection is of varied interest including as it does Egyp- tian, Japanese and Spanish subjects, together with copies of well known Italian paintings. It should be of interest to all members of the College to learn that an exhibition of paintings by Mr. Charles II. Woodbury, of the Art Department, is now being held at Kimball's. ^ i Beacon street, and will be open through February third The Seventy-third Annual Exhibition of the Boston Art Club, consisting of paintings in oil, and sculpture, will be open until February third, on Dartmouth street, corner of Newbury Tickets may be found on the Art Bulletin Board for the ex- hibition, at the Saint Botolph Club, of landscapes by J. Frank- Currier, which will be open from January twenty-seventh until Februarv seventeenth. MONDAY EVENING CONCERT.

Alternative I. Alternative II. Mr. Frank Currier's technique was excellent. He played the difficult pizzicato passages in the "Mazurka di Concert" with great ease and brilliancy. His tone in the "Legende" was full and beautiful. The numbers were familiar, and the audience showed their appreciation by calling for several en- cores. Mr. Bertram Currier played the "Meditation" and "Ein Traum" with much feeling. The Allegro Appassionato was difficult and was well rendered. Miss Hurd. as usual, rendered her part of the difficult se- lections with great brilliancy and precision She was also a very sympathetic accompanist for the violin and 'cello numbers. THEATRE NOTES.
